Executive Summary

For over a century, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee (BGCGM) has served youth ages 6 - 18. With $130,000 from AmeriCorps to fund 10 MSYs, BGCGM will expand its Graduation Plus program to reach 288 additional juniors and seniors at high school clubs, resulting in improved standardized test scores and higher graduation rates. Recruited from UW-Milwaukee, members will provide college-preparation workshops that help low-income students enter and navigate the post-secondary setting.
